Samira Anderson relates the utility of using an array of evoked potentials to fully understand the nature of a patient’s complaints and remember that it is not possible to definitively conclude that a person has “normal hearing” based on an audiogram alone.
Due to the confusion of terms for various evoked potentials, in this column, Samira Anderson will clarify any confusion provide a brief history and summary of clinical uses of these potentials.
Auditory training may be an efficacious management recommendation for older adults. The success of this training is likely to be enhanced if it employs techniques known to enhance neuroplasticity.
Samira Anderson looks at auditory training and neuroplasticity.
Samira Anderson looks at counseling patients on understanding the mechanisms involved in adjusting to increased loudness.
Hearing problems in older people may not be related to audibility but rather to the decreased temporal processing that accompanies aging.
Our newest contributor, Samira Anderson, provides a bit of personal and professional background, and the basis for her new column.
Although hearing aid technology has improved dramatically, some problems persist and hard to predict leading to poor hearing aid acceptance. Samira Anderson’s hypothesis is that the lack of hearing aid acceptance may be due in part to age- and hearing-related changes in the central processing of sound in the auditory nerve, brainstem, or cortex that affect the neural representation of the speech signal.
